The 2014 F-150 is a great choice for a work truck; it has powerful engines, a smooth ride, and a functional cabin. It's not all that great as a daily driver, though. There are some low-rent materials inside, and the infotainment system is aggravating.
There's a wide range of engines to choose from to best match your needs, ranging from a base 3.7-liter V6 up to a 6.2-liter V8. There’s also a fairly unique turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. The base engine is sufficient for daily driving, but one of the optional engines is better for towing or hauling heavy loads. A smooth-shifting six-speed automatic transmission comes with every engine. The F-150 gets up to 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, which is in line with many rivals. For the most part, the F-150 has a comfortable, composed ride, though it can be tricky to maneuver in small areas. The F-150 can haul up to 3,120 pounds and tow up to 11,300 pounds when properly equipped.
